Speaker: Adrian Baker

Title: ‘The processes of dissemination and implementation of NICE workplace health and wellbeing guidance in three NHS acute Trusts’

Date & Time: Friday 4th November 1pm-2pm

Venue: G37 & G38


The project seeks to understand how three NHS acute Trusts disseminate and implement the NICE ‘promoting mental wellbeing at work’ guidance and the ‘promoting physical activity in the workplace’ guidance.  Following the Boorman Review (2009), there has been more focus on the health of NHS staff, with the NHS constitution pledging to NHS staff that they have a right to ‘work within a healthy and safe workplace’ (Department of Health, 2009) and the introduction of staff health and wellbeing measurements in the NHS staff survey.  The NICE provides guidance for employers on how to improve the health of their staff.  Through document analysis and semi-structured interviews, the project will explore the organisational processes and factors that can both hinder and facilitate the implementation of NICE workplace guidance.  The research will describe the process chain involved in implementation and highlight best practice and lessons learned.  The project will develop recommendations to help optimise interventions that improve adherence to the NICE workplace guidance.  The supervisors for the project are Professor Rosalind Raine and Professor Glenn Robert.
